Happy new year, dear reader! As you are well aware, I capped off 2017 by posting some photos of rare gems that had yet to be de-tagged and I'm happy to be starting this year off with another one of those hats. So without further ado, the first Fresh Fitted Friday selection of 2018 is a Portland Rockies hat that I estimate to be from 1995 or 1996.
|Portland only hosted this Class A Short Season team from 1995-2000 but this logo is legendary as it combines the major league club's aesthetic along with a rose, which is emblematic of Portland, aka the "City of Roses."|
|I can't be the only one who finds it neat that the price of this cap is exactly the same as the team's inaugural season (as well as the year it was worn).|
|The usual suspects: classic mid-1990's sweatband tags|
|A purple and black MILB batterman patch is a thing to be treasured.|
Well friend, if you wear a size 7 1/8 and you've got a great cap in my size to trade me, you are in luck as I'm going to have to let this cap go. As of now, I also have this exact cap in a size 7 1/4 and 7 3/4 and I'll be parting with those as well. In addition, these other caps are available for a trade if you are willing to part with any of the hats on my Wish List.
Happy New Year y'all and as always, thanks for coming back to read about baseball hat geekery. I've got comments disabled here so if you'd like to discuss a trade or simply just chat about hats, please feel free to connect via the following social sites:
